Born and raised in San Francisco. As one of the few of this remaining species, I have a keen understanding of what makes particular neighborhoods of San Francisco uniquely their own and as such I take the utmost care to advocate for projects on this site which will truly, positively impact the lives of my neighbors and all local residents - native or new.

Awesome! I'll see if I can make it. Free passes for SF State students would be pretty huge.

Let's also improve transit to the region. Currently the 54 Felton from Daly City BART Station (to and from which students get to the main SFSU campus) to Hunters Point takes too long and is too infrequent. Let's improve direct service by purchasing more shuttles and getting transit passes forward so students are encouraged to also take Muni to Hunter's Point once the campus is built and running.

Many students and student organizations have long been in the process of negotiating the idea of a discounted student pass for San Francisco State University students. Following in the model of the University of San Francisco, we SF State students are ready for a 100% student buy-in to pay for discounted student passes for BART AND Muni but BART has been reluctant to accept this offer. It's time to make San Francisco more affordable for 30,000 students and staff by offering discounted transit passes and with the promise of full student participation, millions of dollars in revenue for BART, a full student need of transit, the integration of Clipper cards, and the ever growing affordability crisis, there is no reason for BART or anyone to say no to this idea.

Allowing this program to go through for one of the largest universities in the area will serve as a template for how to make transit and the cost of living in the Bay Area more affordable for other university students throughout the Bay.
